Ginger, your 5.0 TA is beautiful. The fabric is very cool and the whole rig comes together very well.

Congrats! You'll be camping soon and having a great time.

Hello from snowy Mill Creek, WA. Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I pick her up on the 16th. I'll try to answer the questions:
Jim - the bedroom windows don't open. I was told by ETI the bedroom opening ones are not insulated. Also, figured I could get enough air from the overhead vents, as needed. I doubt if that vent is insulated.
Don and Teresa - the formica trim is brown and the formica is Mineral Olivine 3447-58.
Donna - I got the lounge area idea from you (thanks) as I never eat at the table. I did get those two flip up tables for each side to use as tables if needed. Interesting about the bathroom door. I'll let you know after I pick it up.

It's finally our turn!

We got these photos from Crystal yesterday and they are well underway on our 5.0TA. This time sure arrived quickly- our official completion date is not until January 12.





I can't figure out what that space is under the closet or are those cross pieces just temporary supports for the walls.

Also, it looks like they are fairly far along on the bathroom already. In their haste I hope they haven't forgotten we need a surround in there.



OK, I'm starting to get excited.

Lyle, you lucky dog, I'm excited for you. "Escaping Reality" is due to hatch a week after yours and I can't wait to see some pictures of her.

Hi: iamunique127... That space under the closet will be at the end of the stairs. Here's a finished look, sitting on the foot of the bed, looking down. Under the top step is propane tank storage. Next down is the hinged top of the forward stowage bin. Bottom step we use for shoe's etc.
On the outside is the forward hatch with the landing gear controls. The hatch isn't there yet!!! All will be revealed on delivery. Alf

I'm guessing what you're looking at is a temporary jig to hold the bulkheads in the correct position while other work is done.

On Ten Forward, 99% of the space under the top step is clear, it's just not hinged (because this step is "L" shape). The propane storage is actually in "front" of the step area. Whatever can fit through the second step can be pushed to the front of the trailer under the top step. Lots and lots of room for small folding tables, dirty laundry, etc.

Hi Alf

Thanks for the info.
I'm looking at the open space on the bottom of the closet. I thought I was seeing the back of the landing gear switch on the forward wall of that space. Are you saying that is actually where the driver's side forward hatch space will be?

Great news, Donna. I wasn't aware there was storage behind the stairs. I thought the two outside hatches were behind the stairs but I guess it's just the propane that's behind one of the stairs.
